CUES – Chilled Unit Energy Saver
Intelligent refrigeration control
to reduce energy costs
Refrigeration accounts for around 20% of the world’s energy consumption. It is a huge drain on global energy resources and we have the product to reduce it substantially – CUES.
The world needs more efficient refrigeration
CUES is the solution you’ve been looking for.
The Problem With Refrigeration
The key issue is that refrigeration units are set to a temperature to maintain via thermostat, and the compressor unit of that fridge is cycled on and off to maintain it.
On the face of it, this is sensible. But what really matters – the air temperature in the cabinet, or the food temperature?
Crucially, the two are quite different – the thermodynamic properties of solid food differing substantially from that of air. So whilst the air may well need re-cooling, the food might well not.
Much of the effort expended by your fridge is therefore wasted – attempting to keep cool food that is already happily at the desired temperature.
The CUES Solution
CUES is a simple, retrofit solution to this problem of over-active refrigeration units.
A compact, high-tech device – CUES contains an advanced food simulant with the same thermal characteristics as typical food products. It is installed directly over the incumbent thermostats and ensures that food temperature, not air temperature, becomes the driving force behind your fridge’s activities.
The result is typically longer compressor cycles, but with up to an 80% reduction in frequency. Our clients enjoy substantial energy reductions as a result – up to 33% in many cases – and greater control over food temperature, with benefits to health & safety.

The components of CUES are explored to the right.
As you can see, this product has been carefully designed in the UK to perfectly suit its purpose and operating environment.
A wax-based food simulant is at its core, imitating the thermal properties (thermal conductivity and thermal mass) of the food inside your refrigeration unit. We even provide the product in two variations to ensure easy installation in almost any type or size of fridge unit.
Contact us today to find out how you can benefit from lower energy bills, improved equipment performance and reliability, plus enhanced control of the temperature of stored food products.
